Pilot dead as Two Military Jets Crash in US
« on: June 03, 2016, 07:29:21 AM »

An elite U.S. Navy pilot was killed Thursday in one of two separate crashes of military jets.

The Navy flier died when he failed to eject from his Blue Angels F-18 fighter jet during a practice flight for an air show near Nashville, Tennessee.

The jet crashed as the pilot was taking off. No one on the ground was hurt.

The Navy is releasing no other details at this time.

Also Thursday, President Barack Obama met with the pilot of a U.S. Air Force Thunderbird jet that crashed shortly after a flyover for the president's Air Force Academy graduation speech in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

The pilot ejected from the plane and was not seriously hurt. The jet crashed into a field and no one on the ground was injured.

The White House says Obama met with the pilot at Peterson Air Force Base, expressing his relief that the flier was safe and thanking him for his service to the Air Force.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.
